Erick Beltrán (b. 1974, Mexico City, Mexico) lives and works in Barcelona, Spain. Beltrán analyses and reflects on the mechanisms of thought systems, specifically the relationship of power that exists between the editing process and ways of constructing knowledge. Working with diverse media, such as publication, lecture-performance and installation, Beltrán experiments with the link between public art and diverse graphic languages, investigating the museum, library and the archive as forms of knowledge. Recent exhibitions include Volt, Norway (2019); La Tallera, Mexico (2018); Espacio Odeón, Colombia (2018); and Cuenca Bienal, Ecuador (2018).
